Restaurant
“Best and most authentic italian Restaurant we could find here around! It is the fancy restaurant type, but the prices are absolutely correct for the quality of food you get! I can suggest the Creme Brulee and the Pizza! They also offer very good, self made Pasta! Although is not cheap, there is a fair balance between quality, prices and services.”

In the course of history it used to be known under several names: Felső (Upper) gate, Corpus Christi and Saint Catherine, which is used today. The gate is located near Schei gate and for centuries it used to be the only gate that permitted access on the northern part of the fortress.”
